I posted the last few minutes of the NESN broadcast here if anyone is interested.
Remember Tito's comment on August 17 before Buchholz's debut?"If he throws a no-hitter, I may send him back [to Pawtucket] with a present. But he's going back."!!!!
A gif of Pedroia's Fuck Yeah!
What a night. I feel like now we're going to float through September untouched.Of course I know it doesn't work that way. It's just such a great feeling this morning.
Just after the second strike to Markakis, I had my radio on at full volume with the TV on mute. The cheers of the fans, anticipating that third strike, was like nothing else I'd heard before. I had this strange feeling of euphoria, as the TV zoomed in on Buchholz before he threw his next pitch, with the crowd noise filling the room. I knew it wasn't even close to how it must have sounded to him.This morning, I play back the tape I recorded. :)
I was sorry not to be on the thread sharing this with you all. Instead, I was down at The Bar. With the sound off (Cal-Tenn, anyone? puke), a couple of the regulars and an out-of-towner with a RS t-shirt weren't really aware the no-hitter was brewing. I found myself wondering if he wasn't going to be lifted in the fifth. I couldn't believe it was only three walks he'd given up; maybe I was fretting over them and the hit batsman but it seemed like more. But he just seemed to get better and better as the game went.Fun day.
better than Clemens 20k's
I love the Dusty gif. I caught that last night and put it in the game thread.
Pre game we were at one of the taverns and reliving all of the high points including about 20 middle age men doing th F*** Yeah!!An enormous high. Met with a lot of people before the game and that was topic number one.
